“Southern Charm” star Ashley Jacobs is single — and she’s not mingling with a married man.
Thomas Ravenel’s ex-girlfriend was recently spotted with a kept man whose wife is pregnant, but a source close to Jacobs insisted to Page Six that she and the man aren’t involved in a relationship.
The source told us that Jacobs was at the Belmond Hotel in Charleston, S.C. to discuss a business opportunity with a female companion when they were informed by their server that a gentleman across the room had taken care of their tab.
The guy then came over to introduce himself as a friend of “Southern Charm” star Shep Rose, and said that his wife is from Jacobs’ native Santa Barbara, Calif. They began talking — and he joined Jacobs and her female friend at the table where the telling picture of them was snapped. The insider said that Jacobs had met the man in passing at one of Rose’s parties — which she attended with Ravenel.
The source also denied rumors that she’s in a relationship with another man, former soccer player Ryan Trout, telling us that Jacobs “isn’t looking for a rebound” and “isn’t ready to jump into something else. She has a lot of things that she needs to work on before getting into a relationship.”
Still, the two are friends, with the source telling us that “she went on his boat the other day to hang out with a bunch of people her age and actually have fun.”
Ravenel, 56, and Jacobs, 33, split earlier this summer after a year of dating. Jacobs blocked Ravenel after the photo of her and the married man surfaced, and the father of two then insinuated that she cheated.
Jacobs denied cheating allegations to Page Six, saying: “He’s hurting and he knew that would be the only way to get to me. I just laughed at it. I just laughed at it like, ‘Oh, God. So dramatic!’”
